This conference is devoted to the discussion of research that is being planned or conducted by faculty and/or Fellows in General Internal Medicine and General Pediatrics. The conference is intended to provide Fellows an opportunity to receive feedback on their own studies as well as to give feedback to other investigators on their studies. Each 1st year GIM Fellow is expected to present at least once a year; 2nd and 3rd year Fellows, twice a year.
This conference addresses several fellowship objectives, including
1) To be able to critically appraise the medical scientific literature, including the methodology of published or proposed investigations;
2) To be able to independently formulate a research question, as well as to be able to design and conduct a study to address that question; and
3) To be able to present and publish results of one's scholarly work.
This conference is devoted to addressing the needs of the GIM Fellows, and it changes a bit year to year according to the wishes of the Fellows. it will cover some content areas key to a successful fellowship (choosing a mentor, choosing a research project, etc.), plus allow time for Fellows to talk, discuss clinical cases and meet with divisional directors and faculty who lead the various clinical services.
This conferences addresses most of the fellowship objectives, as well as allowing time for Fellows to network with each other and with GIM faculty.
